Infantino Front 2 Back Rider Baby Carrier Review


Think Twice

Designed as a front carrier that can convert to a back carrier, the Infantino Front 2 Back is dinged by many users who say it's uncomfortable, hard to use, and suffers from durability issues. It's made with ventilated fabric, has memory foam straps, a pocket for keys, and a bib that folds down.

Users at Amazon are not big fans of the Infantino Front 2 back Rider Baby Carrier saying that it is extremely hard to get on and off by yourself, the straps are complicated and the clips come undone making it unsafe to carry your baby in. The same complaints are echoed at Babies R Us Infantino Front 2 Back reviews where users also comment that the carrier is extremely uncomfortable especially for breastfeeding moms with a strap cutting across the chest area. It is reported that the lumbar support is also useless and does nothing to make this low cost baby carrier comfortable.

The Infantino Front 2 Back Rider Baby Carrier (starting at $28, Amazon) is designed to be a front and a back carrier, while the baby can ride facing in or facing out. It is made out of BreatheMesh ventilated fabric and accommodates babies weighing eight to 32 pounds. It comes with a lot of extras such as a bib that folds and snaps down, pockets for keys and such, a lumbar support system and memory foam in the straps for added comfort to the wearer.

Despite the low cost and the many extras with this carrier the user reviews scare us. Not only do users report that this cheap baby carrier is not comfortable, but some users worry about the actual safety of the product to the baby since the clips seem to come easily undone. Our bottom line - stay away from this budget baby carrier.
